Hello everyone!

First off, I would like to thank Joshy Boy for airing his concern regarding the borderline between personal life and game life. On behalf of Staff, I would also like to offer my sincere apologies to any player who has had their game-play experience or personal well-being affected by this issue.

The facts are:
CobbleHut is a Minecraft server; it is a game!
Our players are real people with real emotions and personal lives.
The actions on CobbleHut and discussions in chat affect other people.

So long as we are playing and working with real people the border between personal life and game life will be challenged; the question is where do conversation and actions cross the border. 

The minute that a player's actions and discussions begin to negatively affect other player's emotional health and well-being is when that border has been crossed. Lately, there have been many conversations of an incredibly personal nature in General Chat -- these discussions include detailed and graphic talk of depression, situations concerning suicidal thoughts and actions, physical harm, and the like. These topics can be a severe trigger for other players and subsequently affect not only other players' game-play but also their emotional health and well-being. 

We as staff would highly appreciate conversations of this nature be kept in private messages or in another form of communication outside of the server.

Please know that we are in no way attempting to discourage or devalue our player's personal lives and situations! Human connection and an ability to be vulnerable is a truly beautiful thing, and discussing difficult situations and emotions can begin to remedy these situations. However, we cannot have this type of conversation in General Chat where there are players of all ages; it is not appropriate.

We truly thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation -- our top priority is our players' safety and well-being! This includes making efforts to ensure we do not cross the boundary between personal life and game life to maximize comfort and security for all players.

If you are one of the players who is currently in a difficult place, please know that you are not alone! Many players and staff are willing to and enjoy helping and talking with others concerning personal situations -- these players tend to make this fact very well known; if a player reaches out to you, the choice to take take them up on their offer in a private setting is entirely up to you! Please also consider keeping available resources open to you including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. We wish you the absolute best! Remember "happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light" (Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban).

Once again, thank you for your time, understanding, and consideration.

Sincerely,
El, on behalf of Staff

TLDR Version:
  • CobbleHut is a Minecraft server; it is a game
  • Players are real people with real emotions
  • Our actions affect other people
  • So long as players are real people, the boundary between personal life and game life will be challenged
  • Discussions concerning topics of a highly personal and potentially triggering nature (depression, suicide, physical harm, abuse, etc.) are not appropriate in General Chat
  • These topics can affect not only other players' game-play but also their personal lives and well-being
  • We as staff would appreciate conversations of this nature be kept in private messages (/m [username] [message] or /r to reply) or in another form of communication outside of the server!
  • If you are a player in a difficult place, please refer to the last paragraph ("If you are one...") -- you are not alone and we care about your health and well-being!
  • We truly appreciate your time, understanding, and consideration!
  • Thank you!

the economy needs your vote!

enfalas Owner posted Aug 27, 14
Hello everyone. Currently the economy feels frozen, the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor because no money really exchanges hands in the current model. The mall is practically empty, the market is full of megashops, and overall nobody really trades much.

I would like to change that, but in order to do so, I will have to erase everyone's money. This will allow me to reset the economy into a globalized shop in which prices are dynamic, and based on player actions. For example, if I bought 10 diamonds, the buying price and selling price will go up because less diamonds are available for sale. If someone sells 10 diamonds to the shop, both prices will drop automatically.

This would allow the economy to be playable by everyone, and the dynamic nature will make it far more fair than the way it is now.

Sincerely,
enf

Donations!

enfalas Owner posted Jul 28, 14
Ladies and Gents,

Donations are officially reopened. It was closed because someone attempted to scam players into donating to CH. Know that we appreciate donations but will never threaten or force anyone to donate. Please donate only because you want to. All donation options are currently available in the Server Shop.

Please note that CH will also never sell staff rank positions. We select our staff based on how well they play together with the CH community and their ability to handle common situations on a minecraft server. If you want to become staff, you may apply for a position in the forums.

Thank you, 
enf
plw123 Man i STILL can not figure out wether i should donate or not this is HARD
KeltDiasavere Staff lol...I get to say it.... FIRST!!!
Hey Everyone and welcome to my first SILENT AUCTION

The rules are simple, you see the three houses and if you want them you bid on them. Chest and hopper is nearby to make your bids. However you don't know other people's bids! So make sure you bid a lot but not too much!

These houses are made by ME! DAMIEN DARKSIDE! They are all unique and they all have something special inside of them.
